Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar from 19 Kids and Counting and Kirk Cameron are like totally friends. He’s even appearing on their show – for the second time!

Controversial Kirk, who recently defended Todd Akin and said homosexuality is destructive to society, hangs with the Duggar fam on its most recent episode.

The Arkansas brood chilled with their favorite actor in D.C. The gang decides to go to Ben’s Chili Bowl, one of President Obama’s favorite places in the city.

"It’s one of our favorite places, to go," Jim Bob says. "We have that in common."

Kirk actually appeared on the show when it was just 18 Kids and Counting (above). "We decided to get together tonight and have a little reunion," he says.

Amusingly, on said reunion in our nation’s capital, a couple of fans want to take a picture … with the Duggars. They have no idea who Kirk Cameron is.

"Do you know who he is?" Jim Bob asks. "He’s Kirk Cameron." Kirk, for his part, just smiles and says nothing. As Michelle says, "It was quite funny."

Up next: the family should totally invite Kirk over to sample its Duggars Tater Tot Casserole recipe.
